Book cover for The Heart of a Servant Leader: Letters from Jack Miller
know that may sound silly. Who after all is so stupid as to think he can replace Christ as the Lord over the church and its mission? Still, the history of the church has very few pages that are not blotted by the megalomania of church ...more

“No man shall ever behold the glory of Christ by sight hereafter who does not in some measure behold it here by faith.”
John Owen, The Glory Of Christ

“Reversed Thunder," as the poet George Herbert put it. "Reversed Thunder" -- the coming of judgement in response to the cry, "How long, O Lord?”
Darrell Johnson

John Owen
“By beholding the glory of Christ by faith we shall find rest to our souls. Our minds are apt to be filled with troubles, fears, cares, dangers, distresses, ungoverned passion and lusts. By these our thoughts are filled with chaos, darkness and confusion. But where the soul is fixed on the glory of Christ then the mind finds rest and peace for "to be spiritually minded is peace" (Rom. 8:6).”
John Owen, The Glory of Christ

J. Gresham Machen
“For Christians to influence the world with the truth of God's Word requires the recovery of the great Reformation doctrine of vocation. Christians are called to God's service not only in church professions but also in every secular calling. The task of restoring truth to the culture depends largely on our laypeople.

To bring back truth, on a practical level, the church must encourage Christians to be not merely consumers of culture but makers of culture. The church needs to cultivate Christian artists, musicians, novelists, filmmakers, journalists, attorneys, teachers, scientists, business executives, and the like, teaching its laypeople the sense in which every secular vocation-including, above all, the callings of husband, wife, and parent--is a sphere of Christian ministry, a way of serving God and neighbor that is grounded in God's truth. Christian laypeople must be encouraged to be leaders in their fields, rather than eager-to-please followers, working from the assumptions of their biblical worldview, not the vapid clichés of pop culture.”
J. Gresham Machen

Tyler Edwards
“Get plugged in at your church. Find a way to invest yourself. Let's change the church's problem from 'Where do we find the help we need?' to 'What do we do with all the help we have?' The revolution begins now; and it starts with you.”
Tyler Edwards, Zombie Church: Breathing Life Back into the Body of Christ
